If there was one look that defined the Spring/Summer 2015 catwalks, it was laid back beauty. Nearly every model at every show was sent down the runway looking relaxed and unfussy. Even the bolder looks were kept simple, such as a thin eye line or a sole red lip.
Yet achieving this fresh and simple vibe isn’t always as easy as it looks. If you want to achieve summer’s laid back style, step away from that hot pink lippy and follow our easy guide.
All About That Base
Since not looking like you’re wearing makeup is key to this makeup look, a flawless natural base is essential. If you’re comfortable not wearing foundation at all then great but if you want a more even base, opt for a foundation that will blend seamlessly into your complexion. Max Factor Miracle Touch foundation is great for achieving a really natural yet glowy look while L’Oreal Paris True Match liquid foundation also promises to match your skin tone perfectly.
No Room For Improvements
A laid back lady is perfect just as she is so doesn’t need any heavy eye makeup or contouring. Simply enhance your features rather than trying to change them completely; go over brows and cheekbones with a highlighter to bring out your bone structure, tidy up your brows with a Hi Brow Powder Pallette and finish up with a barely-there but oh-so-pretty lip tint.
Long Hair, Do Care
A complicated updo or back-combed barnet is not very laid back at all. This season’s hair should look as carefree and undone as possible so you’re going to want to focus on hair care rather than layering on a ton of products. Treat your locks to a luscious hair masque every so often to keep them looking as healthy as possible while a Macadamia Leave In Cream will keep hair light and tameable.
Style-wise, natural curls and tumbling tousled tresses are the order of the day. If your hair isn’t naturally wavy, grab a twin barrel styler to perfect those ‘I woke up like this’ waves.
